"^...." matches 4 characters at the beginning of the string. The
format of "svnlook changed" is such that the first character
indicates whether the file or directory contents are Added, Modified
or Deleted; the second character indicates whether the properties are
being Modified; and the third and fourth characters are I believe
currently always blank. In any case I want to skip over those and get
to the path. "(.*/)?" matches, optionally, any path component. This
is because e.g. I want to find the string "dbsecret.php.inc" either
at the beginning of the path (meaning the file is at the root of the
repository) or after a "/" in the path (meaning it's in some
directory). I do not want to match a file named e.g.
"notdbsecret.php.inc". The "$" at the end of the regexp anchors it to
the end of the string, because I do not want to match a file named
e.g. "dbsecret.php.inc.txt". If you do want to match any file whose
name merely BEGINS with "dbsecret.php.inc" then remove the "$" at the
end of the regexp.

"$?" is the exit code of the previous command. So I'm checking if the
exit code of the grep command is 0 (meaning grep encountered no error
and did match the string).
